5:46 pm
see the new cars. the headrest is forward. this is creating a lot of problems. parents are propping the seat from underneath. it's unstable locks. you'll have to play with the car seats before you buy one. they are expensive and you need them. it's the law. dari: to make sure it fits. >> you have to make sure it fits. steve: this is a big news headline in the medical world. marijuana use on campus is the highest it's been in 35 years. researchers say one year we had increase is more and more college students think pot is harmless. coinciding with this, cigarette use is down. >> we're at a 35-year high, get it? 35-year high. dari: manny did standup once in his life. >> six percent of all students smoke pot. dari: should we be surprised.
5:47 pm
it's great news less are smoking cigarettes. >> and if you look at elicit drugs like lsd or synthetic marijuana in college campuses or heroin, those things have gone down dramatically. pot is high. i will predict it will continue to be high in the sense that there's a lot of new rules of states like colorado, washington, they have legalized pot. there's a lot of confusion among young adults. they don't see it as a dangerous drug. we talk in medicine about the medicinal purposes of marijuana. unfortunately the rules are allowing kids to use marijuana more. it's very inexpensive as compared to in the '70s when i was growing up, you know. so these are the things that we have to be careful. the good news is in the third and fourth year of college, pot use goes down again. people are now more aware --
5:48 pm
steve: just seems smoking cigarettes clearly not school on campus. >> it's not that it isn't cool. you can't. steve: those laws are working. >> and they know it's more harmful than pot. this is why. i hope they just stick to pot and be careful with that. steve: good deal. that's honest advice. dari: well, you're highly pragmatic. >> you have to be. you have to be. dari: we were saying last night you've got to tell your nine-year-olds about alcohol. you have to warn them. >> there was a study published looking at once they turn 21, alcohol consumption goes up. pot goes down. now they're legal, they can go have a drink and cocktail. dari: wow. the man over there who has a college student, see all the things you have to be worried about? you've got two more. steve: not his. they're lovely. nights. so far everything is under control.
5:49 pm
so far. i've got two more coming up the line. it will be a long battle. listen, we have temperatures today that were back up at the 90-degree mark. we are making it a heat wave. 90 in the city officially, showing 89 here. this is the hourly observation in midtown. in between one of those hours, we snuck in the 90. changes will come after thursday. look at boston. 79. why? wind off the ocean, off the bay, out of the east. kept them cooler. look down south at washington, d.c. 95 there. 94 philly. we had that slight east-southeast wind for a bit. if that didn't happen, we would likely have seen low 90s today as well. that wind becomes more southwesterly tomorrow and thursday. i think the temperature does go up a bit by thursday. that could be the hottest day of the week. it was in the 80s in buffalo. nothing on fox 5 sky guardian. just a few clouds in the sky tonight.
5:50 pm
let's look at the current temperatures. they're pretty warm. middle 80s around town. it's middle 80s at poughkeepsie and sussex. 81 at monticello and the jersey shore and islip while we have upper 70s from montauk. wind light out of the south at 5, 10 miles an hour. we'll see the south wind continue tonight. tomorrow the wind will become more southwesterly. temperature goes up. i think the humidity goes up with that southwesterly wind. still some showers and storms scattered in parts of florida, coming across much of louisiana. our weather has protected us. high pressure sits there. we'll have the southwesterly flow continue that will happen tomorrow and on thursday. now, what you can't see hiding up here in southern canada is a cool front. it will be dropping down and that will be our next weather maker. that's late thursday, thursday night, this because of an isolated shower in the evening. i think most of the area is not going to see much at all. then we'll have the more comfortable weather at the end of the week. we push 90 tomorrow despite what
5:51 pm
you're seeing at 88 on this map. 92 in chicago. it's 90s down to texas and along the gulf coast. pretty typical. triple digit heat in the desert southwest. 92 denver. 70s for the west coast. we have nothing to show you. our futurecast isn't showing anything. there's nothing to worry about. it will stay clear and sunny tomorrow. thursday, we'll see more clouds come in. that will be the risk of scattered showers later in the day. uvi a 7 tomorrow. a pretty good beach day. 74 in the city. 60s to 70s in the burbs. tomorrow, 90 or 91. still humid with a sunny sky. sun and clouds thursday. 92. a couple of mid 90s in the area depending on the wind and maybe that evening thunderstorm. look at friday and beyond. it's nice. lower 80s friday, saturday. 60s by saturday morning. 80s sunday. 80s labor day. a good holiday weekend is still in the cards. steve: that's amazing. what a great run of weather. thank you, nick.

5:55 pm
>> we would take the honey frames. this isn't a honey frame. we'd put it in a centrifuge and spin it. >> reporter: these hard-working bees produce hundreds of pounds of honey per hive per year which gets sold all over the city including at the farmers market in union square. this is a less frightening experience than i thought it would be. i am impressed by how calm these bees are when they're working. they really just don't care that we're around. i am not at all offended. what would you grade me? >> considering all aspects of today, i'd have to give you a b. >> reporter: you know what? i think that's pretty sweet. get it? thank you. it was nice to meet you. >> reporter: at work putting the bee in brooklyn, jennifer lahmers, fox 5 news.
